Hi everyone,

This is a quick mail to announce the Boston GNOME Summit that we are
planning for mid July.  Some information about the summit is available
on our web page: 


The astute among you will quickly ascertain that much information is
missing.  Forgive us.  We wanted to get this announcement out soon so
that people who know that they want to attend can start planning their
travel arrangements. 


To be held on July 18th, 19th and 20th, the Boston GNOME Summit will be
an intensive working laboratory during which members of the GNOME
project will get together to discuss development issues, demonstrate
their work, and generally continue the upward trend in the project's
momentum.  The goal for this set of meetings is to accelerate the
development and planning work that will lead to GNOME 2.2. 

The intent of the Summit is to be a get-together and a hackfest, not a
formal planning event.  If you cannot attend, this does not mean that
you are left out of the GNOME 2.2 planning process.  That said, we would
ideally like as many of the key GNOME developers to attend as is


The Boston GNOME Summit is open to GNOME Foundation members.  If you
would like to attend the Summit and are not yet a member of the GNOME
Foundation, you should apply for membership. 

A system of registration for the Summit has not yet been established.
This will be available as soon as we figure out what it will be.  Until
then, please hold on to your "horses." 

The summit currently has a maximum of 75 attendees. 

Next Steps 

If you are interested in attending the Summit and are a foundation
member, check out the summit web page and start planning your travel. 
Don't worry about registering or anything like that for now.  We'll let
you know when you can register later. 

The GNOME Foundation is in need of money to help pay for this event.  If
you are interested in contributing, mail fundraising@gnome.org. 
Representatives are standing by. 

Finally, if you are in Boston and would like to help plan and host this
event, please send me email. 

Further announcements will follow as events warrant.  Stay tuned. 

Best wishes,
